There was a lot of remake and remaster love during today’s Nintendo Direct, including a surprise for Kirby fans in Kirby’s Return to Dreamland Deluxe, which is planned for release on Nintendo Switch on February 24, 2023.
Return to Dreamland Deluxe first debuted back in 2011, and is a 2.5D sidescroller focused on Kirby’s copy abilities, including the debut of the mecha copy ability. There is also a minigame collection including returning games like Samurai Kirby and new games like Magolor’s Tome Trackers.
This version will support multiplayer for up to four players on the same system with Joy-Con controllers – unfortunately, it doesn’t sound like there will be online multiplayer.
We gave the original Return ot Dreamland a 7.5, calling it “capable and competent” with “admittedly few faults” but little in the way of new or original gameplay.
